Are you starting to experience decreased joint movement, muscle wastage (decreased muscular strength and endurance), decreasing core strength, reduced cardiovascular fitness, stiffness of ligaments and joints, reduced metabolic activity, increased susceptibility to sprains, strains and muscle spasms, poor bone quality, poorer balance and greater susceptibility to falls and accidents, and move towards Metabolic Syndrome (Diabetes and Heart Disease)? It is possible that you are deconditioned.
Most of the patients complaining about these symptoms and have spent so much time and money trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with them seem foreign to this condition.
This condition happens due to the inconsistency of an active lifestyle, putting our body into a deconditioned state. This condition is not exclusive to elderly people, even teenagers may experience this if their lives revolve around junk food, social media, couch and kitchen.
Not being able to snap out of this kind of lifestyle could lead to more serious illnesses than being deconditioned. Conditions like:
- Metabolic syndrome
- Cardiovascular disease risk
This is the reason why chiropractors strongly advocates to take lifestyle change seriously. It doesn’t just prevent illness from overriding a healthy body but it also makes your life more worthwhile. If, however, the signs are already there, receiving chiropractic care is ideal for this.
Aside from providing immediate pain relief, chiropractic can also provide lifestyle improvement and nutritional programs that will target your overall health.
A sedentary life, though it looks comfortable, could kill you without knowing. Do not let yourself be sucked into this black hole. Do something while you still can, it’s not yet too late to save yourself from a lifetime of limitations, not to mention a boring existence.
